PRESENTATION OF JURISDICTION
Belize was called British Honduras in former days; however, since 1981 it became an independent democratic Commonwealth country located on the Caribbean seaboard of Central America, being of springboard to optimization for several companies around the world.
The Belize International Business Company (IBC) is the most chosen form of offshore corporate structure. The reason is that the IBC structure (International Business Company Act, 1990) must conduct trading and business outside Belize, and can also carry some of its activities within Belize jurisdiction. IBCs are the key for a diversity of tax planning optimization and international investment purposes.
